cupcake...


An update of Google’s Android operating system,
a major U.S. winery in California,
a term of endearment,
a small cake baked in a cup-shaped container & typically iced


They’re historic...

the first mention of the cupcake can be
traced as far back as 1796



They’re instigators...

Cupcake Wars, a competition challenge on the Food Network



They count...

12 to a dozen
uh, except if you’re a baker, then it’s 13




Float into the mix  a little root beer...

a high point of American gastronomic inventiveness




Now doesn’t that just take the cupcake?





it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Yum! What gorgeous cupcakes you've made, Cathy. Hey Cupcake here in Austin calls this kind of cupcake "injected". That's injected with whipped cream. ;-)

OMG, Cathy! They look positively decadent! I love cupcakes. Better than cake because then you don't have to say, "Just a small piece for me".
